Sometimes it's hard to see past the bright colors and cheap plastic of many Dollar Tree items, but if you keep an open mind (and squint real hard) you can see the potential.  

In no particular order, here are a few of my favorite (and most recent) Dollar Tree makeovers and must buy items.

How many times have you walked right past these metal burner covers???

Wire baskets are good for so many things, but have you thought about spray painting them and adding one to a chalkboard?

Jute is great for so many things, but if you're looking for an easy farmhouse craft try making a Wood Bead Tassel Garland.

I've used Dollar Tree succulents in many projects through the years, but these succulent stems that I picked up a few months ago are my favorite and look the most real.

You may be surprised that all the items to make these succulent pots came straight from the Dollar Tree.  Even the ribbon is from Dollar Tree and would be cute hemmed to the edge of a towel or pillowcase.

Seasonal decor is a great way to inexpensively update your home for the changing seasons.   Dollar Tree tends to have a lot of plastic or shiny metal pots and planters, but with a little spray paint or aging you can turn them into gorgeous farmhouse decor.
